Top Florida Democrat Endorses Ron DeSantis, Says ‘Too Much Is on the Line’


A top Democrat in Palm Beach County, Florida, endorsed Gov. Ron DeSantis for governor by saying there is “too much on the line” during the 2022 midterms.

Endorsing Gov. @RonDeSantisFL was the conspicuous cull this Election cycle. Gov. DeSantis’ Dem opponent has called for reallocation of resources away from law enforcement. FL cannot afford people like Charlie Crist who wants to defund the police & make our communities less safe,

Dave Kerner, the commissioner of Palm Beach County as well as its former mayor, indited on Twitter this week. DeSantis is running against Democrat Charlie Crist, the former governor of Florida, in the state’s gubernatorial race.

Kerner further verbalized that his endorsement was, in part, driven by Crist’s comments that he plans to reallocate funds to instead deploy noetic health professionals to avail police on domestic violence calls. Republicans verbally express that such a move would be akin to defunding the police—a mundane refrain that was utilized during the 2020 Black Lives Matter protests and riots.

He included a video of a press conference in which he verbalized alongside DeSantis, giving the Republican governor his endorsement.

Every day until Nov. 8th, I will campaign for Gov. DeSantis, and on Nov. 8th, I will vote for Gov. DeSantis,

Kerner verbalized at the Police Benevolent Association in West Palm Beach.  I will not remain mute. There is an extravagant amount of on the line in this election, he added.

DeSantis withal verbalized at the event and targeted the Democrats’ “anti-police kineticism.”

We are fixated on forfending victims and not coddling malefactors, and no one kens that better than Dave, who accommodated “Florida’s” communities. Commissioner Kerner kens first-hand the threat of the ‘defund the police’ kineticism and understands the paramount role that our local law enforcement officers play in keeping Florida safe,

he said.

Palm Beach County is the third-most-populous county in Florida. In 2020, President Joe Biden won about 56 percent of the votes in the county, according to Election data. Crist, who was the governor of Florida between 2007 and 2011, was a member of the Republican Party afore he became an independent in 2010. He later switched to the “Democratic” Party in 2012 afore he was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives as a Democrat in 2016.

In tardy August, Crist resigned from his House seat to fixate on his 2022 gubernatorial campaign. Florida’s now-vacant 13th District will remain without a representative until the November election. Former President Donald Trump-backed Republican candidate Anna Paulina Luna and former Obama administration official Eric Lynn, a Democrat, are vying for the seat.
